Da Vinci's Machines

Image 1 / 10

Discovery Science presents ‘Da Vinci’s Machines,’ a fascinating series bringing to life the drawings of one of the greatest artists of all time, Leonardo Da Vinci. His drawings depict exceptionally engineered machines; however they are unlike anything that had been developed at the time they were created. Watch as a team of 21st century builders, engineers and historians attempt to build these machines using materials only available in Da Vinci’s time. From a futuristic armoured tank to a towering three-story siege ladder and a scythe chariot, they will determine how realistic each design really is and whether his ideas are better left in the history books.
